Success!!!!!!!!!

The magic bits on the director's screen.  We're in the big time, if only the small end of it.

Ok, some success.  A bit of success.  More success than not.

Mike and I, with Frank Lowenthal and Jim O’Neill, struggled and clawed our way to 42nd overall in the Senior Swiss Teams, a two-day nationally rated event.

Of course, 42nd place doesn’t pay very much–we got 8.51 points for two days of hard play–I could do better sitting at home playing Bridge Base, but they don’t pay off in Platinum Points like a national event does.

Yes, we could have played better.  If we were all at the very top of our games and played to the best of our ability, we might have been 37th.

Coming in 42nd is pretty small potatoes to some people, but it’s a big deal to me, and I”m pretty darn proud to share it with you.  Thanks to all my teammates and let’s do it again in Chicago next summer.
